Blockboi Twitch hails from Toronto, Canada, but he creates hard-hitting music that can be felt far beyond his home on the city's west end. Having put out a few songs in 2018 — with his latest release "Problems" being featured on Drake's OVO Sound Radio — Twitch is back again today with a new song and music video "The Motive," premiering on The FADER.
The track highlights the Toronto native's laid-back, mafioso-style tone, mixed with cutthroat raps about enduring grimy street life and making it out of the city through music. It makes even my nerd ass feel like a born hustler.
"The 'Motive' music video was made to showcase the environment I was raised in. It's about living through and dealing with the struggles of life growing up in the west end of the city," Blockboi Twitch told FADER via email.
